Hong Kong police used tear gas for the first time on Sunday to disperse pro-democracy protests and baton-charged the crowd blocking a key road in the government district after Hong Kong and Chinese officials warned against illegal demonstrations.

Police had not used tear gas in Hong Kong since 2005, to break up World Trade Organization protests against South Korean farmers.
